Falcons waive fullback Bradie Ewing

The Falcons have parted ways with one of their draft picks of 2012.

The club said Friday night it had waived fullback Bradie Ewing, a fifth-round selection two years ago.

The 24-year-old Ewing was limited to two games in 2013 because of a shoulder injury, and he missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL.

The departure of Ewing leaves the Falcons with just one fullback: Patrick DiMarco, whom Atlanta promoted from its practice squad when Ewing was placed on injured reserve in December.

Four members of the Falcons’ six-player 2012 draft class are still on the roster, including offensive lineman Peter Konz. The Falcons did not have a first-round pick in 2012 after trading it to Cleveland in the Julio Jones deal.

    He hasn’t shown an ability to stay healthy.

    Packers, please stay away.

    (Although a healthy 24-year-old fullback may be better than a 31-year-old John Kuuuuhn)

    They are now down to ONLY one FB (most teams in the NFL don’t care if they have any). The Giants have 2 and im still trying to figure out why.

    He is a good kid from a small town near me. I hope he makes it with another team.

    A reminder that’s it’s rarely worth even a low draft pick for a FB, unless you are very sure he has an exceptional skill (blocking, pass receiving) that fits your offensive scheme….Ewing could have been an asset but a FB also needs to stay healthy. DeMarco is no better or worse than most of the starting FBs in the league, and it’s revealing that a guy considered among the best – Vonta Leach of Baltimore – has also been waived a few times when his cost began to outweigh his contribution.

    Three words: Jay Prosch, Auburn

    Fullback probably be had in rounds 6 or 7.

    Bradie went to high school with my oldest son, he is a great kid and a genuinely good person all around. If he can stay healthy, he will be a great pickup for any team in the league. He is solid on special teams, good hands out of the backfield, and a good blocker. On top of that, he would be a great locker room guy for many teams that desperately need it! Good luck Bradie from all of us in the RC!
